In Loving Memory

“As a beacon light she stood”. This can well be said of Mrs. J. F. White (nee Miss Mollie K. Kilgore. She died very unexpectedly at 2 o’clock Thursday afternoon, May 15, at her home near Lillie.

She was born in Florida, July 25, 1852. She came to Louisiana with her father in 1858 and was reared near Lisbon, Louisiana. She married J. F. White in 1871, later moving near Lillie where she lived until her death. Her husband died August 18, 1928.

She was the mother of twelve children, seven of whom are still living, they are, Misses Bankie, Nora, Mr. B. B. White, Mrs. W. E. Butler, Mrs. W. H.Farrar, all of Lillie, Mr. J. C. White of Bernice and Mrs. Kasper White of El Dorado, Ark.

As “Mother” her name among her children shall always bring to memory her untiring efforts to comfort them in sickness, encourage them when discouraged, and instill high ideals of Christianity with in their lives. It was hard indeed to part with then but the cares of life; the battles; the trials have been met, endured and conquered her journey’s done, her victory won, and she is now a beacon light in Heaven guiding yet the foot stops of her children and in fact all who knew her, by the memory of her own life.

Then let us bow our heads in humble Submission, and be thoughtful that we had so great a mother, grandmother, and friend, for God gave, he took away: he doeth all things well. A Friend.
